Tributary
A TRIBUTARY or AFFLUENT is a stream or river that flows into a larger stream or main stem (or parent) river or a lake . A tributary does not flow directly into a sea or ocean. Tributaries and the main stem river drain the surrounding drainage basin of its surface water and groundwater , leading the water out into an ocean. A confluence , where two or more bodies of water meet together, usually refers to the joining of tributaries. The opposite to a tributary is a distributary , a river or stream that branches off from and flows away from the main stream. Distributaries are most often found in river deltas .
